Hi I'm Segolene!
I am the Birth and Postpartum Doula behind Your birth. Your choice. I am also a Childbirth Educator.
My mission is to provide expectant parents with the highest quality of childbirth education and support throughout their childbirth journey. My goal is to empower you with all of the information you need to make informed decisions about your care. I believe that the choices you make during childbirth should be your own, and I strive to ensure that you feel confident and supported during this transformative time in your life.
Your Choices Matter
The birth experience is one of the most important moment in one’s life. It has the potential to be a beautiful, positive and empowering experience. I understand how important your journey into parenthood is, which is why I offer a wide range of birthing services to help you feel confident and informed, so that you are empowered to make the best decisions for you and your family. Together, we can work toward your birthing goals and create a positive, peaceful, and stress-free experience.
What is a Doula?
A Doula is a professional companion experienced in childbirth, who provides educational, emotional and physical support throughout pregnancy, labor and birth. As the journey to parenthood is one of a kind, doulas also offer support during the postpartum period.
How a Doula can help?
Studies have shown that continuous support from a doula:
- shortens labor,
- decreases the birthin people's need for pain medications,
- increases the probability of spontaneous vaginal birth,
- lowers the risk of c-section by 50%,
- results in better outcomes for the newborn,
- facilitates parent-infant bonding,
- decreases the incidence of postpartum depression,
- encourage appropriate well-baby and parent care,
- reduces the rates of child abuse and neglect,
- increases new parents' confidence in their parenting skills.
“After our introductory meeting, we already had a good feeling about Segolene. She was able to answer all of our questions clearly and with care, and we really liked her demeanor. We acted quickly to have her as our doula for the birth of our baby.”
